My Lip Balm Obsession
I have a bit of a lip balm obsession! Over the past few months, I’ve made at least a dozen batches. Like a mad scientist, I experimented with a combination of different ingredients, on the hunt for the perfect recipe. Finally, I think found “the one”. These new lip balms are soft, shiny, moisturizing, and the balm stays in place without feeling waxy. Smoochable success!!!
If you’re interested in the hows and whys of ingredients, I thought I’d include a breakdown of the recipe components:
Avocado oil: Luxurious feel and highly moisturizing.
Fractionated Coconut Oil: Outstanding glide and shine.
Rice Bran Oil: Creamy and moisturizing.
Castor Oil: Adds shine, glide, and thickness to the recipe, so the balm stays on!
Vitamin E: Antioxidants galore.
Candelilla wax: A plant-based alternative to beeswax that I think feels, smells, and even tastes good.
Here are the 3 scents that I thought would be perfect for summer in Genoa City!
GC Buzz Honey:
Warm, sweet, alluring honey! It’s absolutely intoxicating, much like our GC Buzz hostess!
Lil’ Miss Perfect:
Mouth-watering Girl Scout Thin Mint chocolate cookies. Perfect in every way! I’m sure you can guess who this scent is inspired by. 😉
Pool House Pina Colada:
Flawlessly blended pineapple and coconut cocktail with a cherry on top. My personal favorite!
Scented, Not Sweetened | Shimmery, Not Colored
I want taste my food, not my lip balm. 😛 So, these balms are fully fragrant, with no sugar added, so you can enjoy the scent instead the sweet. Personal preference, but I think you’ll appreciate that too. Also, I wear lip balm every day, all day. I like shimmer and shine, but if I want color, I’ll grab a lipstick. These lip balms have a bit of colorant added, just for fun, the color does NOT show up on your lips.
Summer lip balms will be available in the soap shop on July 2nd. If everyone loves them as much as I do, I’ll definitely start concocting some new ones for Fall.
